    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    I love to cook with tomatillos! They have a unique sharp citrus flavor similiar to a lime. I can tame it down with sugar or heighten the flavor with lime zest. This recipe is low cost and can feed many. I love it with bow tie pasta. All the minced pieces in the sauce stick to the bow ties. I had to feed 8 on a moments notice and I grabbed these worked! Serve with fruit. This could easily be adapted for vegetarian meal without the chicken. If you half the recipe cut the onions,tomatillo and chicken in half, nothing else. Leave the liquid and spices as is.

      Loved this recipe. It's been a tomatillo marathon to catch up with the harvest from a dozen plants and most recipes are with the extra heat with peppers except yours. A very nice change and definitely a make again. I followed sauce ingredients but for the meat broth I used 2 big turkey thighs with 2 1/2 cups water and simmered for an hour. I increased the amount of cooked broth plus some extra tetra chicken broth so mine was abit on the liquidy side which was okay. Also used leftover cooked egg noodles and it was probably less pasta than what was called for but it all came together great and tasted fab.
